Kick Movie Review

Sajid Nadiadwala makes his directorial debut with ‘Kick’ starring the man himself – Salman Khan, who returns with yet another masala entertainer to mesmerise his audience during the holy weekend of Eid-ul-fitr. Jacqueline Fernandez is cast as Salman’s love interest. Talented actors like Nawazuddin Siddique and Randeep Hooda have important roles to play.

Expectations of a film that delivers wholesome entertainment are high. Does Kick live up to those humongously high expectations? Let’s find out!

Story: Himanshu Tyagi (Randeep Hooda) meets his prospective bride Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) in a train and they start talking to each other. She shares her past with him, the story of her ex-boyfriend Devi Lal Singh (Salman Khan). Everything that Devi does in life, he does it for a ‘KICK’ (mental high). He was a brilliant student, a college topper, but ends up quitting several jobs. Reason? Lack of KICK! Shaina and Devi are in love and share some of the best moments in their lives. But one day, he disappears. Why? For a new Kick.

Himanshu, a police officer, is in search of Devil (Devi Lal a.k.a Devil, get the connection?), one of the smartest thief’s in town. One day, Devil, who has now lost his memory, returns back into their lives. Why did Devil leave Shaina? How did he lose his memory? Why did Devil turn into a thief? Watch Kick to find out!

KICK Review – Starring Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez

Kick Review: Sajid Nadiadwala does a decent job in his debut film as director. He retains the core storyline of the original Telugu film, adds a few crowd-pleasing dialogues, gives it a big action film feel and includes every other element that describes a typical Bollywood masala film — Romance, action (although there were fewer action scenes than we expected), comedy, punch dialogues and an item number featuring Nargis Fakhri. The film also reminds you of the ‘Dhoom’ series of films, which again is not a bad thing.

The music of the film grows on you. Himesh Reshammiya’s ‘Jumme Ki Raat Hai’, Yo Yo Honey Singh’s ‘Yaar Na Miley’ and ‘Hangover’ are the three best tracks in the film. ‘Yaar Na Miley’ looks visually stunning on the big screen. However, the placement of the songs could have been better. The editing could have been crisper. The cinematography is top notch and the production design is outstanding. Sajid Nadiadwala leaves no stone unturned in making KICK technically brilliant. Make-up, styling and costumes are all different and good. Rajat Arora’s dialogues will get extreme reactions – you will either love it or absolutely hate it.

Coming to the performances, Kick is Salman Khan’s show from start to finish. This is his version of Dhoom 4 and he charms his way through. Jacqueline Fernandez looks pretty and surprisingly doesn’t get completely out-shined by Salman’s presence. Randeep Hooda is good, but hams in a few scenes. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is outstanding. Mithun Chakraborty, Saurabh Shukla, Sanjay Mishra and the rest are all good. Nargis Fakhri looks gorgeous in a special appearance for her item song.

Overall, one of the dialogues in ‘KICK’ that has become popular is “Dil mein aata hoon… samajh mein nahi”. That dialogue pretty much sums up the entire film. If watching Salman Khan on the silver screen gives you a ‘KICK’, leave your brains back at home, take your entire family along and enjoy the 2 hour 27 minutes extravaganza called KICK!

Reasons why you should be booking your KICK tickets

  • Salman Khan.
  • Jacqueline looks picture-perfect throughout. Watch out for Jumme Ki Raat.
  • High production values that make Jai Ho look like a b-grade film in comparison

Reasons why you shouldn’t be watching KICK

  • Don’t like Salman? Don’t bother.
  • If you don’t like leaving your brains back at home.
  • Editing and song placement
Rating: ★★★★☆

  • Indicine ratings for BMB: 3.5
    FOR RANJHAANAA: 3.5
    AND for KICK: 4? ?
    Hmm…so kick is better than the former two in indicine reviews! !

  • jay ho was intelligent but public want entertainment ….( well ticket prices for jay ho was vary low 100 rupees only )…

  • Yeah ! Obviously …jay ho was brainy …wat was d result in terms of money ? So people want entertainment …bcoz movies r 4 entertainment …how I can 4get jay ho ticket was just 100 ? Anyways kick rocks all d way …

  • so get ready for tsunami that will shatter the boxoffice.@nipun just shut up you hater it is a millions better than bang bang and what abour youtube records in 2days kick was 4.2million with 40k likes views where as bang bang 3.3 with 23k likes hahaha… so next time don,t compare any shiver with kings of bollywood khans.

  • @indicine
    so ur rating depends upon genre?
    I thought a good movie gets more star inspite whichever genre it belongs to.

  • @indicine:
    well, whatever the genre may be, ratings should be given based on its quality. I am not saying that kick is bad or what. But your ratings show that kick has got more stars than BMB n ranjhaana which means kick is a better movie. That’s it.

  • Jai ho was brainy? ? Lol. .tell me some more please..it was an average content. Just becoz it has a social msg doesn’t mean it’s brainy. There are things called “DIRECTION”, “SCREEN PLAY” where jai ho fails badly.

    And @saif: kick is millions time better than bang bang. THIS IS CALLED STUPIDITY!
    have u watched kick movie? Watched bang bang? ?
    And talking about trailer/teaser bang bang teaser is way better than kick trailer. And i don’t even want to compare salman with hrithik. It would be an insult to hrithik.
    It didn’t abuse kick, i was talking to indicine. Now wonders,why salmanfans are called senseless or brainless.

  • Hrithik does amazing action and i have read amazing reviews of action done by Hrithik in Bang Bang in newspapers-says Salman Khan in a recent press meet

    I hope now salman fans wont bash HR. PEACE!

  • Indicine reviews are fast becoming Taran Adarsh kind of reviews…have to say reviews have not been upto the mark this year…
    You should have given 3.5 at the best…
    CE got 3.5 from you and it was one of the most loved film of 2013,i don’t think KICK will be liked that much despite getting 4 stars…

  • wow just watched and it is out of the world how can anyone look so good what a look of salman in the and dance uff totally killer i want to watch it again n again n again this is the movie that will remember for years i am now totally salmam fan till my life end.i am damn sure all who don,t like salmam will love him instantly after this movie just go and have big blast at theatres.
